meetings on their new plan to nullity obama care in the state. and in missouri, republicans are introducing a new measure to nullify federal gun laws. so the right wing's big new idea is to embrace one of the oldest and ugliest ideas in our political history. nullification. it dates back to the 1820s. south carolina politician john calhoun game up with nullification as a way to let slave-owning states ignore potential anti-slavery laws from washington. it was a terrible idea then, and it's a terrible idea now. critics have said the gop is stuck in the '50s, and they're right. the 1850s. joining me now are michael eric dyson and dana milbank. thanks for coming on the show. >> hi, reverend. >> michael, nullification surfaced at the final rally for a republican candidate last night. what's your thought on this? >> we've been celebrating the 50th anniversary of the march on washington and that speech that martin luther king jr. made. remember he said about those southern politicians whose lips were dripping with the words of interposition and nullification, this is what he was refer

people going town to town like obama care is terrible. every republican hates obama care. >> that's not in dispute. but in terms of how we cover this business and they have to find new plans, shouldn't we include the fact that some people might end one a better deal? >> i think we should and we will, and i think the biggest problem has been that there hasn't been enough specification, all these plans being lost. so far, they're on the individual market and that is not being made clear. people who get their health insurance outside their employers. everyone is out there saying -- >> congratulation toes tim for telling the truth. he's embarrassed to support the president's plan, but he told the truth. >> take him at his word. all right. >>> there's been a lot of stories about individual people who have lost their current plan, one by cbs's jan corcoran. i want to play a little bit of it and ask you about it on the other side. >> that includes 56-year-old diane barrett. last month, she received a letter from blue cross blue shield informing her as of january 2014 she would lose her cur
